No no, your critiquing at the art and not me, I appreciate that. And yes, man I need more background practice...and learn painting techniques without a custom brush. Honestly, this was an attempt after reading a tutorial made by a concept artist, except that person knows how to use custom brushes without it being obviously painted by custom brushes.
Hmm, I see that. I did use a reference of how light hits mountains in this kind of scene but failed to remember that the more in front an object is from the light source the more darker it appears. I painted the mountains before the sun and didn't see the error afterwards.
just wondering but what size do you usually make your canvas on Photoshop when you draw? i usually get confused with inches and pixels, they all look the same, but when i read it it turns out some of my drawings are like 5 feet wide O_O its hard to tell on a screen
I usually start off my drawings the size of my monitor...which is 24" diagonally. That is roughly 1920 pixels wide and 1200 pixels high. Its a decent painting size for getting good details in paintings. If I ever wanted to print out my paintings *like poster size*, I would bump up the pixels to around 3 to 4 times that much. For billboards, 8 to 9 times, but seriously I don't think I would paint at that size.
Another thing to consider, is the dots per inch density, or dpi. I like working at 300dpi so I can really zoom in to paint details, like the eyes. However, the web naturally shows 72dpi. So when submitting a picture DA has to compress your image to that level. So I normally compress my painting myself so I can have better control over the clarity of the pixels.
This information may be over your head for now, but reading through how-tos and manuals through the years it eventually gets embedded in your mind, haha.
